Just echoing the sentiments in this thread.
The whole 'interim belt' thing is a load of crap, it really is. The whole purpose is to keep the division moving when a champ is out for an extended time.
If you're an 'interim title holder', you in no way, shape or form should have a choice in waiting for the champ. You're not the champ, you didn't earn that right so fight.
Stuff like this just makes my blood boil, really. GSP is going to come back and dismantle Condit and then everyone else. We should see the Condit/Diaz rematch (if Nick comes back) or something involving Kampman, Ellenberger, Hendricks.
